Global Race Club lets players get their hands greasy by building and customizing the fast car of their dreams.  Players can build from the ground up or buy fully restored Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, even world famous Kustom Cars like TV’s Batmobile and Munster’s Coach, designed and built by George Barris, the King of Kustomizers and a creative consultant on Global Race Club.  Players can show off their car creations or challenge their friends and rivals to head-to-head racing action at the race track. It’s a fun, social, competitive, never-ending quest to build the unforgettable, unbeatable car. 

Campaign contributors will receive rewards across a variety of tiers.  Rewards range from original concept art to a stylish racing jacket to getting a virtual car named after a contributor.   And for a top tier, $10,000 pledge, contributors will get an Executive Producer credit, and an opportunity to visit the Peterson Auto Museum, meet George Barris, receive a personal tour of his world-famous shop, and be photographed with his iconic cars like the Batmobile.

“Kickstarter is the ideal solution for getting Global Race Club into the hands of race fans- lightning fast,” said Gene Mauro, President of Entertainment Games, Inc.  “We believe that crowd-sourced funding is inspiring a game industry renaissance by establishing a direct relationship between content creators and consumers.  Global Race Club allows car fanatics of any age to collaborate directly with us to help shape the design of the most innovative social car gaming experience to ever hit the web and mobile devices,” Mauro added.
